Typography Vela Lighting by Rakumba

Designed by Studio Truly Truly

Named for the VELA constellation, this new family of spherically formed luminaires suggesting celestial bodies interprets the Typography rail as the axis of an orbital space.  The distinctive plate feature alludes to the occlusion and shadowing created during eclipses, changing as the viewer moves about space.

This interplay of light and shadow is a fundamental aspect of Typography VELA. Bringing drama through Calder-evoking sculpture – either minimalist or extravagant – VELA invites designers to exercise creativity using the incredibly versatile Typography system as the backbone. A palette of black, golden, and De Stijl inspired colourways allows for every installation to stand as a unique artistic piece.

About the designer

Studio Truly Truly

Studio Truly Truly is a Rotterdam (Netherlands) based design studio. Founded by Australian husband and wife design team Joel Booy & Kate Booy, and operates on the interface between industry and art. They run a versatile practice, creating textiles, lighting, furniture and spatial installations.

There is a focus on designing high quality products that combine technical ingenuity with new aesthetics. This results from an urge to dive deep into the production process, to push materials and techniques to their limits.

Industrial processes are frequently combined with abstract organic details or forces of nature. In their work, the natural and unnatural are blurred or contrasted in new ways, putting their qualities in the spotlight to be consciously considered and celebrated.
